Workshop 6: AGILE PROCUREMENT

AGILE PROCUREMENT | What It Is and How to Implement it

Traditional procurement works on legacy systems and frameworks. Decisions aren’t hurried. Lots of time is taken with each of the procurement stages – identifying the needs, outlining the procurement plan, selecting suppliers, issuing RFQ, tender evaluation, contract terms and conditions and supply chain management. Agile procurement, on the other hand, focuses on time and speed to achieve a quick turnaround and delivery excellence. To achieve this, some steps are combined or eliminated completely.

• How do you determine if agile procurement is right for your organisation?
• How do you implement and apply agility in your procurement processes?
• Does agility compromise value in procurement?
• How do you ensure high-value deliverables and reach your customers in the shortest time possible?

Workshop 7: LEVERAGING CONTRACTS

LEVERAGING CONTRACTS | How to Use Contracts to Your Advantage and to Generate Real Value for Your Organisation

A recent study revealed that 70% of CFOs only see procurement’s added value as cost savings and their point of departure when querying escalating costs is the contract documents. According to the study, 70% of procurement professionals don’t know how to negotiate a contract in a way that they can demonstrate value beyond cost savings. In other words, they cant prove value!

Where does the real value lie in a contract and how do you demonstrate it to your C-Suite?
Existing contracts can be a tricky affair but how do you use your existing contracts to generate more value for your organisation? And how do you start the conversation without being guilty of supplier bullying? – Learn how to use every contract to your advantage
